2. Explain what is the Tri State of a Signal?

In digital ciruit, the gate output can be only high or low. In highstate the output source current at a minimum voltage, greater than ~2.8V if load(fan out ) is proper. In low state it will sink current at max output voltage less than ~0.8V. Some times it is derirable to have a state output both not high or low. with neither sinking or sourcing (with high output impedance). This is called tristate. Tristate output cannot change output condition of succeding logic gates, unless tristate is disabled.

4. Why the input resistance of an ideal OP-AMP is infinite and output resistance is zero?
secondly, how can we measure these resistances(input and output) in case of an ideal OP-AMP and Real OP-AMP in the following conditions when
1- load is not connected.
2- load is connected.

Ideal OP-AMP is a power ful concept.

If one goes through the history of amplifying devices, it becomes clear that less it loads the previous stage, better the output signal. ie. it is a trend toward higher and higher input impedances.

Also it is better to maintain the signal level irrespective of the LOAD connected at the ouput. Lesser the output impedance, less the signal amplitude reduction when load is connected. ie. it is a trend toward lower and lower output impedances.

As ideal opamp is a concept , by virtue it has zero output impedance and infinite input impedance, and they are not physically measurable but has to be taken for granted for the use in theoritical analysis.

To measure input resistance, of non ideal opamp, connect a known source at the input and give a signal (within Specifications) through a current meter of sufficient precision. Input voltage by current gives the input impedance.

To measure input resistance, of non ideal opamp, connect a known source at the input and give a signal (within Specifications) through a current meter of sufficient precision. Input voltage by current gives the input impedance.

To measure output resistance, of non ideal opamp, connect a known source at the input such that the output does not saturate and connect a load (within Specifications ) through a current meter of sufficient precision and meaure the output voltage. Output voltage by current gives the output impedance.

9. What is Edison Effect?

In a conducting material, the electrons are governed by Fermi-Dirac statistics. The baseline electron energy is the Fermi Energy*, and at low temperatures the electrons all exist at or below this level. As temperature is increased, so the distribution function for the electrons develops a high energy 'tail'. Some of these electrons have sufficient energy to pass over the surface potential barrier between the material and the vacuum. This process of increasing the temperature of a bulk material to increase the number of electrons which can leave the material is called thermionic emission or Edison effect.

25. How to convert a binary number into BCD number directly and vice-versa, without converting it into any other number system?

It depends on the range. An algorithm can be used.

For a number in the range of 0 to 19 (decimal), the following algorithm can be used:

if a<10
a_BCD=a;
else if a<20
a_BCD=a+0x06;
end

for example if a=0x0E, then a_BCD=0x0E+0x06=0x14, which is the BCD representation of 0x0E.

This could be generalized for a number in the range of 0 to 99: a_BCD=a+n*0x06, where 10*n<=a<10*(n+1).

26. Explain differences between microprocessor and micro controller?

The microprocessor is the integration of a number of useful functions into a single IC package.

These functions are: The ability to execute a stored set of instructions to carry out user defined tasks. The ability to be able to access external memory chips to both read and write data from and to the memory.

Basically, a microcontroller is a device which integrates a number of the components of a microprocessor system onto a single microchip.

So a microcontroller combines onto the same microchip : The CPU core Memory (both ROM and RAM) Some parallel digital I/O Essentially, a microcontroller is obtained by integrating the key components of microprocessor,RAM, ROM, and Digital I/O onto the same chip die. Modern microcontrollers also contain a wealth of other modules such as Serial I/O, Timers, and Analogue to Digital Converters.

54. How will you determine what frequency the device has without using oscilloscope?

The frequency of a device can also be calculated by the method below:-

Speed of light (c) =299,792,458 m/s. Planck constant (h) =4.13566733E'15 eV s (1E-15 denotes "10 in power -15")
Frequency(Hz) = Energy/h=Energy/4.13566733E'15 eV s. Energy needs to be expressed in "electron volt (eV)" units. For example, to calculate the wavelength of the ultraviolet (UV) light with the energy 4.5 eV: Frequency =4.5 eV/4.13566733E'15 eV s=1.09E15 Hz=1,090 THz. Note the prefix "Tera(T)-" implies the magnitude of 1E12

Divide the speed of light by the wavelength to calculate frequency. Frequency (Hz) = c/ wavelength(m) =299,792,458 (m/s)/frequency. For example, to calculate the frequency of the visible red light with the wavelength of 700 nanometers (nm): 700 nm equals to 7E-7 m. Wavelength=299,792,458 (m/s)/7E-7m= 4.28E14=428 THz.

All of these include the same technology of storing digital information using transistors,capacitors.

75. How to identify how many states the ripple counter is having by looking at the figure as it can also have some invalid states?

If in the ripple counter, there are 3 flip flops, it is a mod-8 counter which counts from 0-7(binary). If additional circuitry is used, then it is a counter where few states have been trapped. Usually this is done by connecting a Nand gate output to the clear inputs of all the flip flops in a ripple counter. The clear signal is a active low signal and hence clears the flip flops to 000 when the output of the Nand gate goes low. The inputs to the Nand gates come from the flip flop outputs when they represent the count which we need to eliminate.

For ex: If a mod-8 counter is to be altered to count from 000-011 (0-6), i.e., we need to build a mod-7 counter from a mod-8 counter. To do this, we need to clear the counter to 000 once the count reaches 7. In effect, the counter needs to count from 0-6 and recycle back to 0. To do this connect the outputs of the flip flops which go high on a count of 7. This makes the output of the Nand gate high when a count of 7 is attempted, and hence clears the count back to 000.

76. Explain which oscillator is best for general purpose?

Oscillators generate a frequency it should be noted that it does not create energy, but nearly acts as an energy converter.

77. What is the difference between Circuit Switching and Packet Switching?

Circuit switching is the transmission technology that has been used since the first communication networks in the nineteenth century. In circuit switching, a caller must first establish a connection to a callee before any communication is possible. During the connection establishment, resources are allocated between the caller and the callee.

packet switching is a more recent technology than circuit switching which addresses a disadvantage of circuit switching: the need to allocate resources for a circuit, thus incurring link capacity wastes when no data flows on a circuit. Packet switching introduces the idea of cutting data on a flow into packets which are transmitted over a network without any resource being allocated.

But there is no practical device exactly cut the sidebands and low frequency part contains important information. Therefore VSB ( Vestigeal Side Band) transmisson is preferred

82. Explain why making capacity of the circuit breaker is higher than breaking capacity?

Making capacity is the max fault current it can carry during closing of breaker, e.g. You are closing a breaker on fault. The making capacity is always higher because it is expressed in peak value not rms, and also because of the DC offset, voltage and PF while closing

83. Tell me why do we convert Frequency Domain to Laplace Domain?

Frequency domain ----> deals with jw
Laplace domain ----> deals with s, but s = (sigma) + ( jw )

so with sigma = 0, laplace domain and frequency domain are the same.
We convert time domain to either laplace domain or frequency domain to
study various signal processing system properties.

For example: A RLC circuit can be tested for stability using laplace domain techniques.
We find the closed loop differential equation and transform it into laplace
domain. By relating the input and output, we find the closed loop transfer
function. By locating the position of poles from the obtained s-domain
function, we can assess stability of the circuit.

84. What is Circuit switching?

Circuit switching is the transmission technology that has been used since the first communication networks in the nineteenth century.

The main difference between sequential circuits and combinational circuits is that sequential circuits compute their output based on input and state, and that the state is updated based on a clock. Combinational logic circuits implement Boolean functions, so they are functions only of their inputs, and are not based on clocks.

96. The output of the rectifier pulsating in nature, it consists of a desired DC component of voltage and unwanted ripple components. These ripple components are removed by placing filter circuit at the output of the rectifier.

Types of filters:
1. capacitor filter
2. series inductor filter
3. LC filters of following two types
(a)capacitance input filter
(b)inductance unput filter
4.RC filters.

Filters are used to remove the unwanted or undesirable components of a output
waveform, so the basic work of filters is to smoothen the output.
From electrical devices we
are not getting perfect sinusoidal output, it contains a DC component i.e.
ripples, harmonic distortions etc. so filters are used to rectify these
components.

97. Explain what is meant by virtual ground in the op amp?

The op amp connected in a negative feedback configuration, that is the o/p connected to the inverting terminal, tried to produce the same voltage at the inverting node as we applied to the non-inverting terminal, no matter whatever be the o/p. This happens because the opamp has a very high differential gain. so only way to not to clip or saturate the o/p in either positive or negative side is to make their both i/ps at the same potential. so when you apply the i/p to the inverting terminal and you connect the feedback to the inverting node, and your non-inverting terminal is grounded, then op amp tries to force the inverting node at the ground potential and whatever the difference between these two nodes are amplified.

98. Why are the 2 input terminals of an op-amp are called as inverting & non-inverting terminals?

An input applied to the inverting terminal of an Op Amp provides an amplified output which is 180 degrees out of phase with respect to the input, whereas the non-inverting terminal input provides an output which is in phase with the input.

100. Explain what is angle and amplitude modulation? what is noise in modulation?

modulation means change. to send a message of low frequency to a far distance we use a carrier of high frequency to carry the message. while transfering we change some parameters of carriers for faithful tranformation of message signal. if the amplitude of the carrier is varied in accordance with frequency of message signal then it is called amplitude modulation. if either phase or frequency is changed in accordance with the frequency of message signal then it is called angle modulation.

noise is an unwanted signal which enter in signal while transfering a signal and makes the signal distorted.

117. What is CMOS Transistor?

Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS), is a major class of integrated circuits. CMOS technology is used in chips such as microprocessors, microcontrollers, static RAM, and other digital logic circuits. CMOS technology is also used for a wide variety of analog circuits such as image sensors, data converters, and highly integrated transceivers for many types of communication.

CMOS is also sometimes explained as complementary-symmetry metal–oxide–semiconductor. The words "complementary-symmetry" refer to the fact that the typical digital design style with CMOS uses complementary and symmetrical pairs of p-type and n-type MOSFETs for logic functions.

Two important characteristics of CMOS devices are high noise immunity and low static power supply drain. Significant power is only drawn when its transistors are switching between on and off states; consequently, CMOS devices do not produce as much heat as other forms of logic such as TTL (transistor-transistor logic). CMOS also allows a high density of logic functions on a chip.

The triple compound "metal–oxide–semiconductor" is a reference to the nature of the physical structure of early (and interestingly now, the very latest) field-effect transistors, having a metal gate electrode placed on top of an oxide insulator, which in turn is on top of a semiconductor material. Instead of metal, current gate electrodes (including those up to the 65 nanometer technology node) are almost always made from a different material, polysilicon, but the terms MOS and CMOS nevertheless continue to be used for the modern descendants of the original process. (See also MOSFET.) Metal gates have made a comeback with the advent of high-k dielectric materials in the CMOS transistor as announced by IBM and Intel for the 45 nanometer node and beyond

118. Explain what are the main advantages of synchronous circuit?

Binary codes are divided into weighted binary code and non weighted binary code,
Excess 3 code is an example of non weighted codes since the position of each bits in excess 3 code does not have weights says like ones, tens, hundred in decimal and 2^0,2^1,2^2, in binary.

128. Explain what does CE mean..U will see it on almost every chip(IC)?

The CE mark is a mandatory European marking for certain product groups to indicate conformity with the essential health and safety requirements set out in European Directives. The letters 'CE' are an abbreviation of Conformité Européenne,

French for European conformity. The CE mark must be affixed to a product if it falls under the scope of the approx. 20 so called 'New Approach' Directives. Without the CE marking, and thus without complying with the provisions of the Directives, the product may not be placed in the market or put into service in the fifteen member states of the European Union and Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. However, if the product meets the provisions of the applicable European Directives, and the CE mark is affixed to a product, these countries may not prohibit, restrict or impede the placing in the market or putting into service of the product.

Thus, CE marking can be regarded as the products trade passport for Europe. The CE mark is not a quality-mark. First, it refers to the safety rather than to the quality of a product. Second, most quality markings are voluntary opposite to the CE marking, which is mandatory for the products it applies to. CE indicates conformity with mandatory European safety requirements. European conformity is certified by following clear and understandable procedures, the so-called ‘conformity assessment procedures'

138. What is Pulse Width Modulation?

Pulse width modulation is a modulation technique in which the width of the pulse is varied in accordance with the message signal. Pulse width Modulation is abbreviated as PWM.
PWM can be used to reduce the total amount of power delivered to a load without losses normally incurred when a power source is limited by resistive means. This is because the average power delivered is proportional to the modulation duty cycle. With a sufficiently high modulation rate, passive electronic filters can be used to smooth the pulse train and recover an average analog waveform.

PWM is used in sound synthesis circuits.

141. Explain what is difference between Fixed-Bias Circuit & Self-Bias Circuit?

Fixed bias circuits get their bias voltages from independently designed reference voltage sources (or even something as simple as a voltage divider). Often is the case that the bias may be left for the end-user to give some control over the operation point of the circuit.

Self biased circuits get their bias voltages from the circuit itself, often in the form of a negative feedback. This is very useful when a circuit is extremely sensitive to bias points and it becomes impractical to provide external biases that are correct to very high accuracies. This can happen in high gain amplifiers with very high impedance output nodes, such as a common source amplifier with an active load. The operation of the circuit dependson the bias of the active load. It would therefore be desirable to sacrifice some of this gain by providing a negative feedback from the output to the gate of the active load. This way, you wont have to bias the circuit yourself, but will lose some of the gain of the circuit as a price.

147. The function of a transistor used in any of the ICs is to perform SWITCHING action and not AMPLIFICATION.
Then why DIODES are not used instead of TRANSISTORS as diodes also exhibit the same switching action?

I agree Digital ICs use transistors as switches. But Analog (Linear) ICs Do Use transistors as Amplifiers. Consider the differential pair of transistors that form the front end of an op amp. The advantage of transistors over diodes, is that transistors have a control input and diodes do not. You can use the bipolar transistor's base input (or the gate input of a CMOS transistor) to control a larger current with amplification, or overdrive to turn On/Off.

158. Tell me why is 400 Hz used for flight instruments and Radio Transmission System in Aviation Industry universally?

You need some sort of AC for power transmission and distribution inside of aircraft. Power companies use 50/60Hz because any higher frequency results in excessive inductive and capacitive losses, given the many miles that have to transfer power over. But a higher frequency gives you lots of advantages in transformer and motor weight, and over the short distances in an aircraft, the inductive and capacitive losses are not excessive. So overall, the higher frequency saves weight, and for aircraft, that is important. Like all designs, the choice of 400 Hz is a compromise between losses and low weight.

161. What is selective flooding?

Flooding most often occurs when a large enough number of packets (the droplets in a stream of data) are flowing through the network that regular data cannot be sent in a normal speed and fashion. Generally it a packet/response of syn/ack or synpackets: the intialization of connections between 2 tcp/ip hosts requires a set of back and forth responses eg. "hey, are you there?" "yes, I'm here." "Are you ready to receive data?" "yes I am, go."

A synflood consists of something like that horrible Verizon Mobile commercial - "Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now?....." you get the idea. Synflood hosts don't respond to the "yes" back from destination, they keep just asking over and over. The faster the flood, the slower the network and computers on the network will run. There are people who take remote control of a large number of pcs (a zombienet or bot-net) and use these to flood the victim with even larger numbers of syn packets. They get control usually by malware (viruses or trojans) and often can't be traced.

Innocent flooding can occur when a router is given a circular route to some of the hosts on the network - the router asks for the response from a certain host and another router says 'I know where that is.. it's (another interface on the first router)' and passes the requst to router 1, who then passes it again to router 2, who sends it to router 1, who sends it to router 2 ..... using protocols to test for and close internal loops in a network will most often stop flooding.

162. Tell me In a MOSFET, What does the pinch off voltage refers to?

Pinch off voltage is the excess voltage Vds applied which limits the current flowing into drain.. at that point the current saturates...and the o/p current remains constant.

163. What is the importance of the biasing in transister circuits?

As transistor is using as amplifier the operating point should be stable, in operating transister the temperature can fluctuate operating point, there by to avoid operating point fluctuation some mechnism must be used, this mechanism can be called as biasing.

164. Why we need biasing for Transistor, FET and MOSFET?

Basically transister contains active region, saturation, cut off region. In saturation and cutt of region transister is used as a switch. To use transister as amplifier the operating point should be in exact middle of the active region.

165. Tell me what is Race Around Condition in a JK FlipFlop? How it can be avoided?

When the input to the JK flip-flop is j=1 and k=1, the race around condition occurs, i.e it occurs when the time period of the clock pulse is greater than the propagation delay of the flip flop. so the output changes or toggles in a single clock period. If it toggles even number of times the output is same but if it toggles odd number of times then the output is complimented. To avoid race around condition we cant make the clock pulse smaller than the propagation delay so we use
1. Master slave JK flip flop
2. Positive or negative edge triggering
Since the hardware cost of msjk is more edge triggering is preferred to msjk.

166. We take the area of collector wide comparison to base and emitter. Why?

Emitter, base and collector are the three terminals of a transistor. Emitter emits majority carriers and is highly doped. Collector collects these majority carriers after the majority carriers reach base. Base is lightly doped region. As the collector is reponsible to collect majority carriers injected from the emitter it should have sufficient power handling capacity. This emphasises the need for largest area of capacitor.
Also area and doping of the base should be lowest because most of the carriers it obtains from the emmiter should contribute towards conduction.
